Election 2008: Live Blogging the Day

Bookmark this page, as I’ll be posting often, including pix from the Rabbi Report’s magnificent election night gala, right here on E. 9th St. in Greenwich Village (you know…the place where all the pinkos are).
11:00pm- I have no words. We’ve done it and I’m overcome by emotion. Colorado and Florida, too. 333 electoral vote, so far. I am going to go and be with my friends for a while.
10:20pm-Text from a Fox News staffer to a friend: “Memo sent from McCain campaign: No path to 270.” Well, we already knew it, but man…it’s great to hear the McCain camp say it, even if it’s “secret.”
9:25pm-ABC and MSNBC have called Ohio for Obama. Add that to CA, WA, OR and HI….well, you do the math.
9:21-CNN calls the KY Senate race for Mitch McConnell. Not good.
Losing Pennsylvania and NH is incredibly damaging to McCain.
8:32pm-ABC calls the NC senate for race for Kay Hagan. +3!
8:21pm-Jeanne Shaheen (D) defeats GOP senator John Sununu in NH, so that’s a net pick up of 3 seats for the Dems!
8:15p,-Fox News predicts Liddy Dole, going down in flames in North Carolina. If that’s true, that’s another Senate pick up for the Dems!
8:05pm-Multiple networks call Pennsylvania and NH for Obama. EV counts are now 102-34. CNN, however, has NOT called PA.
7:53pm-Numbers in Florida and Indiana are looking very good for Obama. Track the county by county races here.
7:50pm-Lunsford is only down by 6/10th of a percent, with over 28% of the vote reported in KY. This is really good.
7:30pm-Ohio, West Virginia and North Carolina closed. CNN unable to make any predictions.
7:13pm-Bruce Lunsford (D) is giving GOP stalwart Mitch McConnell a run for his money. It’s a 2 point race with 13% reporting. Follow it here.
Adam Kersh colors in Vermont for Obama:

7:04am- Obama wins VT (3 EV) and McCain picks up Kentucky (8 EV). No big surprise, here. Mark Warner wins a senate seat in VA. Dems +1 in the Senate.
6:54pm: Six minutes. Six Minutes. Six minutes, Doug E. Fresh, you’re on!
6:00pm: Polls in most of Indiana and 1/2 of Kentucky are now closed. However, networks will (rightly) not predict until 7:00pm.
4:45pm: The party will feature booze, food and the special Giant Rabbi-Tastic Map™:

Stay tuned for special election night coverage, as we watch this historic night unfold. I might even post some pix or video of special guests changing the colors on the map!
